Elegantees - Whitney Tee (Spring 2018)

A few years ago, I had the privilege of partnering with Elegantees founder, Katie Martinez, on various projects to promote Elegantees with my Stella & Dot business... we've combined efforts for a fashion show in NYC, collaborated on photo shoots with the jewelry and the tees, and we designed our first "Whitney" tee!

Elegantees - Whitney Tee - Ver. 1.0 (2014)

Elegantees is the stylish and comfy marriage of elegant and tees. Each design feels like a go-to cotton tee, but each is dressed up a little more. Each piece is designed with purpose to provide meaningful employment for women rescued from sex trafficking. Made in Nepal, one of the least developed countries in the world, which ranks high for trafficking, the seams of each one creates a bright future for the overcomer who made it.

Recently, I had the pleasure and privilege of joining Katie as she pitched the company to Whole Foods HQ in Austin, TX. As we reflected on this experience and the time we had known each other, we both agreed it was time to launch a NEW "Whitney" (2.0) tee!

I co-designed the "Whitney" tee with Katie not only because I loved the flutter sleeves and the cut of the tops, but also I love businesses that support the growth and development of women! With these bold colors representing bold women, I also wanted to promote a company with an incredible cause.

I am so delighted to introduce this piece to the Elegantees Spring 2018 Collection, which I also asked two ambassadors Amy Riojas and Jennifer Tegnerud to style and share as these women embodied the spirit of Elegantees.

Amy Riojas (follow her on Instagram here!) in Grape. See her Insta-video in the tee here.

Amy also paired her grape Whitney tee with the Stella & Dot Horizon Chandeliers (which are no longer available, but the Aiyana Fringe Chandeliers are a nice alternative!), Rebel Pendant Necklace and the Taj Clutch!

Me wearing the navy with my Stella & Dot jewelry, of course! ;)

The "Whitney" tee is available in sizes XS-XL in colors: navy, grape and deep rose.
